Voting Reminder - And, Busting a Bird Rescue Myth

Watermelon - looking cute!
Watermelon - looking cute!

We often hear people say that rescue birds must have something "wrong" about them - so in their quest for a new feathered companion, they are biased toward buying a bird from a pet store or breeder.

Nothing could be further from the truth! 

Yes, surrenders happen because guardians cannot afford their pet(s)' medical care. Just as often, surrenders occur because of the guardian's own financial or medical difficulties.

Meet Watermelon, a recently-surrendered lovebird.  Watermelon's former owner gave her up because of the owner's allergies.  Watermelon is a healthy, well-socialized and spectacularly-colored lovebird who will make someone a wonderful pet - and she's getting a great chance at finding a wonderful new home because of Mickaboo.  Contact coordinator-lovebird@mickaboo.org to learn more about Watermelon or to inquire about adopting her.

While Watermelon doesn't need medical attention right now, many of the 450+ birds in Mickaboo's rescue flock DO. If you have not already voted in GlobalGiving's Photo Contest for Mickaboo, would you take a moment to do so now? Mickaboo Companion Bird Rescue could win $1000 toward its birds' monthly vet bills of $25,000 (and more)!

If you can help:

  • VOTE at this link (one vote per person allowed)
  • CONFIRM* your vote via the email you’ll receive – otherwise your vote won’t count!
  • SHARE this voting request via email / Facebook / Twitter / your other social networks, and ask your contacts to vote and share too! 

Your help will be appreciated by the hundreds of birds cared for by Mickaboo's many dedicated volunteers.
